In a day when many churches teach that the Law of God is a bad thing that was entirely done away with in Christ and is now irrelevant for the believer, we see that nothing could be farther from the truth.

We consider how the Law serves as a schoolmaster, pointing us to Christ for salvation. Once we are saved, Christ points us to the Law to show us how to live for Him and the Law then points us back to Christ for the grace we need to live a holy life.

The Moral Law of God is still in place for the believer - not as something to be kept to earn salvation, but as something that shows us the beauty of God and His character and something that is to be the standard by which we live. Christ has kept this Law for us and now gives us the grace to enable us to live more and more holy lives.
